    I love rise against thanks to the bonus song Prayer of the Refugee in Guitar Hero 3. As soon as i got that song thats all i played. Now i own most of their cds and they are definitely my favorite band.

    Avenged Sevenfold! I thought all modern rock completely sucked until I heard them. And for some reason Paramore, "Thats What You Get" from RB and "Misery Business" from GHWT caught my ear. I like her voice.

    Definitely Metallica! I had heard of but did not listen to Metallica before Guitar Hero: Metallica came out so I didn't really have an interest in the game, but I rented it because I love Guitar Hero and ended up really liking their music.

    Elite Beat Agents got me hooked to blink 182, Hoobastank, Good Charlotte, and Steriogram!

    music games made me appreciate the band protest the hero even more and muse from GH3
  • phantomsight2 - August 22, 2009 7:33 p.m.

    Guitar Hero: Word Tour definitely made me appreciate Tool. Schism, Parabola, and Vicarious are all in the game. I have so much respect for Tool, now that I understand how talented each of the bandmembers are. Long live awesome drum and bass solos!

    Um...? Not really any, I think. I've found that ever since I play the first Guitar Hero game, throughout all the various metal tracks that have been in these games (because metal is what I listen to) there have been very few occasions where I'm not already familiar with a band in some form. No doubt there are some people out there who had their first exposure to At The Gates via "Blinded by Fear" as part of Rock Band's Earache Thrash Pack. Me? I looked at that and said "Oh hell YES!" Now we just need the rest of the album that that track is from.

    sources indicate that stricken is not a band. stricken is a name of a song by Disturbed, and down with the sickness is another song written by Disturbed, which happens to be a band i would have never known if not for guitar hero 3 since my search for that song ended with a bunch of other songs they made.

    Though I believe that music games generally slaughter the music, it did introduce me to Muse, so I'm good with that.And Thomashalpennny, there is no rap on music games because rap is not music.

    I picked up a copy of GTA Vice City at my local used cds and bitchin' merch store, and I started listening to their VRock station. Since then I started listening to TOO much hair metal and Judas Priest and other 80s shznizzle. Hell, I even went and watched the new Friday the 13th, thinking I could get some sort of 80s nostaligia. I ended up getting nostalgia for the movie store, where I should have got Evil Dead. Oh well. And Christina Scabbia is a goddess.
  • mentalityljs - August 22, 2009 3:27 a.m.

    @didideve: The band is Disturbed, not Stricken, and yes, they kick ass!!!
  • H2A2I00 - August 22, 2009 12:37 a.m.
